. making demands on their government, demands for transparency and accountability. if they do not find alternatives, they could be in trouble. if you have a business, to help us solve this saudi arabia problem, you would be in a competitive position. this is not a theory. it works. i had the opportunity last week to congratulate ceo of electro- motor diesel, now part of the caterpillar company, on a contract for locomotives. a little over two years ago, a previous executive was in my office bemoaning the reality that he was about to lose a competitive bid to another country based on costs. even though we have had provided advocacy to the ministry on its behalf. he was sure that the contract award would be on price. when i asked him for his value proposition, he had little to offer other than our locomotives are better than theirs. they lost. fortunately, the saudi arabians agreed to take the winning entry on approval basis for two years. so they had a chance. a new team came forward and we discussed at length what it takes to win. the principles are fairly straightforward. first, find
the stretch. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment and can bring american families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. >> rachel brings up a good point which is it is now an economic argument focused on states like ohio. we're going to talk to governor kasich in a moment, 7% unemployment in that state. so how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in important battleground states? >> well, that important battleground state has a republican governor. that's done exactly the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. that is, he's lowered taxes and closed budget deficits. but i actually find the trust argument very odd because president obama promised that we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate that would be far below where it is today. he hasn't delivered on his promises. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya? i mean here we have an extraordinary t
i am not confident that there is a measure that the government can take to make everything more secure. what i do believe would be possible is there could be a better way to incentivize. because right now when we heard dimitri with the oil company ceo, he has said, i have these regulatory issues. how long can i try to contain this before i bring others and? >> maybe we can keep this under the rug. there is a lot happening there. have you incentivize them to share information. >> i have to jump in. okay. i'm just a girl trying to protect a network share. the thing is i don't believe that this is the right model. i think crime is a better model. if you look at crime now, people say, well, you pour more money into it, then are we going to reduce crime. if we have more policemen, is that going to reduce crime? if you have laws, regulations won't stop it, laws won't stop it, it is just vigilant. vigilance about citizens protection and the way that they need to comment having law enforcement in the right places in order to best leverage a limited number of resources. and i think we re
been so important to obama running so well in ohio. it's a choice -- either government should just sit by and let the market do its thing or government can come in and correct certain outcomes and prevent catastrophe. that's the kind of choice we face in this election. >> if you want to talk about trust. what obama is talking about on the trail, first of all, there's no second-term agenda. when he goes off the record with the "des moines register" last week. he gave out a second-term agenda which is nothing like he's been talking about on the trail. >> that's not true at all. >> the corporate tax rates. talking about weeding out immigration. talking about immigration reform, which he has not talked about much in public and a grand bargain with cutting spending $2.50 for every $1 of tax revenue. >> did you see his proposal he's put on the table? >> you want to talk about being factually accurate. it's factually inaccurate it say that governor romney was against the rescue of the auto industry. if you read his entire op-ed. you guys are journalists, i assume you believe that words are im
is that i spent 25 years working for the federal government in a lot of agencies. those agencies comprise 40% of our discretionary budget. the misapplication of resources going on in our federal government should be stopped. they should be listening to the constituents. thank you very much. >> thank you. i am running for the united states senate because i want to make a difference. i believe america needs a new generation of leadership. what is wrong with america is extreme politics and extreme wealth. my opponent to represent the status quo. charlie summer's represents extreme politics and angus king represents extreme wealth. what i am offering the state of maine is someone who is not beholden to outside interests. we need a new generation of leadership. i hope to have your support. >> my name is andrew ian dodge. i am in this race because i believe the issues of liberty, freedom, and individual rights are being trampled on left and right, whether it is a resting -- arresting a farmer for selling raw milk. i have a touch of ethnicity about me and i am the youngest in the race. i hope we ha
so well in ohio. it's a choice. either government should sit by and let the market do its thing or govern comes in and prevents catastrophe. it's the kind of choice we face. >> if you want trust, what obama is talking about on the trail. first of all, there's no second term agenda. when he goes off the record, he gives out an agenda that's nothing like what he's been talking about on the trail. >> it's not true at all. >> immigration. he's talked immigration reform which he's not talked about much in public. cutting $2.50 for every tax dollar in revenue. it's not what he's been running. >> if you want to talk about being factually accurate, it's factually inaccurate to say governor romney was against the rescue of the auto industry. if you read his op-ed, you are journalist, you believe words are important. what he says is he believes the government should have provided financial guarantees. the difference between governor romney and president obama is who gets to stand first in line to get paid off. >> money in the market that was going to go into the auto industry. >> that's w
government and newspapers, without one or the other, he would have preferred to do with newspapers and without government. then he got elected and began to claim he was misquoted. from that, zocalo said big questions may lot of different perspectives. we have re-different people here -- three people here from different parts of the country, different backgrounds. they're all journalists. they are all people who have looked at a wide variety of topics in their work, and have among the topics they have looked at, are the media itself and specifically questions about how we keep a check on power, keep a check on government. you will hear from all three of them. i will introduce each of them as i ask the questions. immediately to my right is bernardo ruiz. his most recent film "reportero," is an incredible film if you have not seen it, it follows a reporter at an embattled mexican news weekly reporting on organized crime and corrupt officials. the film was completed and toward mexico and the human rights watch film festival and will air january 7, 2013 on pbs. he also produced two docu
and centrist movement in ohio because of the kind of governance that kasich was bragging about there. there's another side that i think is going to affect organize's organizing capacity. that's why i think ohio is leaning more blue than it otherwise might be. >> ohio is prospering in part because of what kasich did. it seems that obama has a leg up in part because of fracking. if some of the environmental groups had been able to shut down cracking, ohio, boem could win because of fracking and all the jobs that's creating. second thing, the core issue of this campaign, we've got a need for tremendous government reform. we've got governments that are helping create a sclerotic economy, and what kasich has done, what mitch daniels has done, indiana, some of those reform governors have done the sort of reforms that strip away the sclerosis. and i'm surprised that mitt romney isn't running on that sort of broad -- i'm not radical. look at what mitch daniels has done, i want to do it for the federal government. >> it's amazing he's not running on a change washington. he's winning the
importantly, he works for city governments. gordon feller, michael littlejohn and you have heard from carlo. it is very hard to moderate. all i want to do is tweet. i wanted to start with a question that really builds off of carlo's presentation. this can be a very broad conversation. we are talking about efficiency and how we manage congestion and lower energies. we are talking about the integration of data. we are talking about participation was social media, co-production of solution. david mentioned this. the united states is not quite at the vanguard of this. when i think it can just in, i think about singapore. he brought the copenhagen. i want to start with the ibm and cisco part part of the world. where do you see progress within cities? where in the u.s.? >> we can point to smarter transportation and public safety and health care. that is not necessarily a smarter city. a smarter city, and it was alluded to a number of times this morning, is a city of the complex group of systems. how do you take advantage of the integration of those systems. this is where we are lacking. take a bu
think that there is going to be a mentality to get the government spending any money at all because -- i would agree to this point if there is not enough money i think we could drive more efficient cars and we could change the power plants but if there isn't a profit of changing to natural gas, companies won't do it. they are not going to lose money to change their power plant over to natural gas. the afton de subsidize. i think it is a sad day because america needs to admit climate change is real and we don't have the money to fix it. i don't have the answer for you but it's ignorant to ignore it. >> host: that's john of the mexico. the presidential candidates were sidelined on the storm from campaigning six days ago before next tuesday's election and here is the headline on the "the washington times" romney balances sympathy and politics to raise donations here's what he had to say about the rally yesterday. i proceed affect people in dayton got up this morning, some went to the grocery store and purchased some things that these families will need, and i appreciate your generosity. it'
about government covering their health-care costs. i am on medicare now, certainly the government takes my. when i was working, you have no idea how many times, because i was the person who put the insurance payments into the computer when i came to the hospital, and you have no idea how the insurance companies to turn down a thing this. host: even though they make their comments known about the presidential race, we are focusing on cost and said races in your state. a couple of stories, at this one out of new york when it comes to hurricane sandy, federal money do not up to states and hurricane aftermath, the first trickle of federal funds start to go out. 29 million to rebuild highways. $30 million to hire temporary workers to help with the cleanup. it is certainly to the multibillion dollar bill for the government. the federal office has 7.5 billion to spend. an additional 5 billion could be made available withinan offsets required in other government programs. that is in the new york times. when it comes to how the money is concerned, this out of the new york post. the state labor d
have a bunch of issues. and what that does is create uncertainty. if the government can go and do what they want regardless of what the lot is -- what the law expert, and the government says coppola -- what the lot is, and the government says, and going to do it and go ahead and sue me. that is as much of the problem as the volume we have seen. the cost of the regulation is inconsistent with the underlying law that was passed by congress, or never even contemplated by congress. co2 is a toxic substance. i cannot imagine anyone who voted for the clean air act who would have suggested that was something that was covered under the definition when they passed that bill. the overriding issue is government run amok because the president is incapable of getting any of the stuff through the congress. you have a president who has decided that we are going to do this on our own. and the media, as we all know, it's certainly not going to go out and hammer him for doing these things. they agree with him for the ones to do. they let him get away with it. it is up to conservatives to try to make the
of pakistan as if somehow the american government or the american people have something to do with this crazy movie. that was bad policy and bad form. it is why this story goes on and on. i get back to the primary question. why was no one guarding be ambassador? why did they removed the 16- person security team that has -- had requested to stay? it was requested that a security team stay in one of the most dangerous countries in the world. would you like to be the bureaucrat in the state department said, you need to come home because we do not have the money? what i have been pounding home is, four days after the dc-3 was removed, they spent $100,000 to spend money for electric cars that cost the taxpayer 250,000 dollars per car in subsidies. this was a political statement they were making. they wanted to show off for the europeans and say, we are as european as you are. we do not have money to provide for the basic security of an embassy. that is inexcusable. whoever made that decision, the already know that. whoever made those decisions should be fired. >> susan ferrechio from the washingto
. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs. [applause] when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare. [applause] senator nelson has voted for higher taxes 272 times. i voted to cut taxes. [applause] senator nelson voted to gut our military. i voted to strengthen our 34il8 tear. military [applause] a couple of things happen when i beat senator nelson. the second thing that happens is harry reid will no longer control the agenda. [applause] so florida, we're counting on you, we're counting on you to get out there and vote for mitt romney. i'm counting on you to go out and vote for me. together we'll make sure that mitt romney is the next president, that i'm the next se
. there is a sense that these kind of situations will make people turn and embrace big government, but you're already seeing a lot of of flaws in the federal response, fema not getting a lot of these generators that they promised online quickly, so, i don't see any kind of a national move toward bigger government as a result. >> paul: kim, the other big story this week is that the romney campaign has been expanding the field. the electoral field moving into pennsylvania with a very big ad buy much bigger than the obama campaign and even talking a little how the fact that minnesota could be into play and the president was in wisconsin, and close to campaign in iowa, places where he should, you think he would have locked up. do you take this expansion of the field seriously? >> yeah, and i think that this is part of the momentum argument for romney, now, you've had the obama campaign desperately trying to tamp that down saying it's not true, it's not real. the reality is what you've seen since the denver debate is mitt romney pulling ahead in a lot of places, now, that momentum has slowed down a little
.s. invasion and the toppling of hussein -- pusan -- a secular liberal government that was willing to cede some of its sovereign rights to a foreign power. some claim it's all different now with the islamic republic because the arab awakening, the demonstration effect will work together with sanctions to find the break the back of the islamic republic. but this ignores the fact that the islamic republic sees the arab awakening as hugely positive, hugely positive. iranian policymakers and analysts believe that any arab government, any arab government that becomes at all more representative of its populations beliefs, concerns and policy preferences will, by definition, be less enthusiastic about strategic cooperation with the united states, let alone with israel, and more open to iran's message of foreign policy independence. what policy elites here ms., is the islamic republic does not need governments to be more pro-iranian. that's not what they need. they just need these governments to be less pro-american, less pro-israel and more independent. but you often hear in washington in particular t
the recession officially ended, that may spare government, but it won't stimulate the private sector than it did four years ago. >> that's what mitt romney said today at kinsler construction services in ames, iowa. you know that blissful moment waiting for the other shoe to drop? you can see david letterman scrutinizing the ties. to look for the tag to see where it's made. you know you're in that moment right now? as noted at think progress today, kinsler construction services benefitted from almost $700,000 from the stimulus that mr. romney says did no good for any companies in the private sector. you can try to make the argument that the stimulus program did not help private businesses even though the evidence shows the opposite is true. but he you're trying to make that false argument, that the stimulus program didn't help any private businesses, as you are standing at a private business that the stimulus helped, that is a particular kind of implicit lie. and the rest of us can see that lie as it is unraveled in realtime by reporting. even if you the teller of that particular lie do not seem
. they spent money apologizing to the people of pakistan as if somehow the american government oral the american people had something to do with this crazy movie. i think all of that was bad policy, bad form and it's why this policy goes on and on, but still i get back to the primary question, why was no one guarding the ambassador. why did they remove the 16-person security team in august, that had specifically requested to stay? boy, i would hate to be the person who is sitting there today, who made the decision, when it was requested, that a security team stay in one of the most dangerous countries in the world, would you like to be the bureaucrat in the state department who shade oh, no, we don't have the money, you need to come home? the same with a dc-3, and what i've been pounding home is, four days after that dc-3 was removed in may of 2012, they approved $100,000 to green up the embassy in vienna, to spend some money on electrical charging station for electric cars that cost the taxpayer $250,000 per car in subsidies. this is a political statement they were making at the vi
, and current tv. >> bill: lot of emails today about the question of the roll of the federal government at a % time of natural disaster like this. roy asks if we give responsibility back to the states, are we still the united states? good question. paul says i think reality should be pointed out to people of the south, they get most of those big storms they right now are getting more from the federal government than they pay in. if mitt romney were elected, how could they pay for their disasters when they can't pay their own way now. darlene asks just watching some of the rescues from the storm, i didn't see one stockbroker on hedge fund manager risking their lives. yeah, good point. we'll talk about some of the gay and lesbian issues in the campaign with terry next, and joined by fawn johnson from the national journal. [♪ theme music ♪] >> bill: trick or treat. hey, good morning, everybody. happy halloween, and welcome to the "full court press" this wednesday october 31st. good to see you today, we're coming to you live all the way across this great land of ours

"fox & friends" begins now. it's ominous morning this morning as we begin to see what sandy does on the east coast. tropical storm the. >> the cold front coming from the west one monster slow moving storm so its effects can be felt for a few days. has sites set on the united states. rick reichmuth has been following sandy's path. so i get, rick, that's good news. others say it can be worse than irene. >> don't pay attention to it being downgraded. it doesn't mean anything. it's not really completely a tropical storm. it's going to be transitioning to what we kind of consider a nor'easter. we are accustomed to nor'easters. that kind of a event. moisture associated with a tropical storm. tropical storm holds a lot more water in the atmosphere as it transitions. that water is still going to be there radar picture showing the rain is following across parts of the carolinas. the rain is going to be heavy all day. battering waves, a lot of wind. beach erosion and that sort of thing here. go forward on the track of this storm. continues to move northea
sector job, there were some losses in government jobs, that's why the number is 171,000. they revised upward the number of jobs for the last two months. so remember jack welch and the republicans saying, they were manipulating the numbers and attacking the professionalism of the people who do this work, well, they actually understated things a month ago. in addition, the number of people who voluntarily quit their jobs, that's an indication of how confident people are, they can find a new job, that number went up so that's a very good sign. and there is another number in the different report, the number of housing vacancies, both rental and owner occupied has declined which tells you the housing market is improving. all of the numbers are getting better. they're not as far as long as we need to be, but the direction is very clear and it is all upward. >> richard, how important is this jobs report politically? i mean, in the closing days to the election, certainly it must have a much more of an impact than, say, something maybe six or seven months ago. >> right, well, it certainly isn'
government better? >> i think that's fair. if you had a huge hurricane that affect eed sometimes -- >> for example. >> either positive or negative. they can get really angry that the response wasn't really big. or >> one other potential surprise this week, that final unemployment report coming out on friday. you're an economist. looking at the numbers right now, what are you expecting to see and how much difference will it make. >> we have seen over the last year and a half, one month's numbers don't seem to crack through the shell that much. that said, we had -- probably artificially too optimistic number last time, some rebound. but at the same time, the economy has been improving. i think most people are expecting the unemployment rate not to change much. >> most believe that the country is going in the right direction. >> let's look -- everybody has been talking about how close this race is right now. i want to show one ad that president obama is running down in florida and some of the other battle ground states. >> 537, the number of votes that changed the course of american
with in a different kind of place. or they tell me that at least. starting with government as one. you started in government. you were an inspector general with health and human services. legislative leadership out of the press corps put them in office and occasionally put out stories that have not put a lot of attention, reporters working in l.a. county where i live for the board of supervisors, they do journalistic logs or critical internally. does that have value? can't the government doing this? can you be doing journalism from within government? >> no. i don't think you can be doing journalism from within government. the office of inspector general is supposed to be -- this is that the federal level -- is supposed to be thepolitical. that is not the case. has been a long time since i worked there, when i was there during the clinton administration was absolutely not a political. people make decisions about what course you're going to take and what you're going to do. i was told during the bush administration, they would write reports that would be completely red lined and turn into a 1-pa
the proper scope and actual confidence of government. it will come down to a basic feeling that people have, who understands government better? >> i think that's fair. though, it will be interesting to see, if you had a huge hurricane that affected sometimes -- >> say a huge hurricane, for example. >> either positive or negative. they can get really angry that the response wasn't really big. or they could say, whoa, do we want to be on our own when something like this happens. >> one other potential surprise this week, we're going to get that final unemployment report coming out on friday. you're an economist. looking at the numbers right now, what are you expecting to see and how much difference will it make? >> we have seen over the last year and a half, one month's numbers don't seem to crack through the shell that much. now with that said, we had -- probably artificially too optimistic number last time, there will probably be some rebound. but at the same time, the economy has been improving. i think most people are expecting the unemployment rate not to change much. >> most believe tha

is much more government-centered than new hampshire, and they're moving across the border and then voting democratic. the fact is that's not true. the towns along the border with a lot of new residents, a lot of transplants from massachusetts, are really the solid republican counts these days. years ago, in the 1960's, for example, the cities where democratic. allou were a candidate, you have to do is win the talent. the towns along a the vermont border are very strong democratic towns and very strong democratic areas now. so it has almost been a complete reversal. the old yankee farmer, if you will, might have switched party registration in the last 20 years. host: here is judith on twitter -- guest: governor sununu is a very knowledgeable former governor of new hampshire and he was white house tebow staff for george h. w. bush. he certainly knows national politics. it-- he was white house chief of staff for george herbert walker bush. a very smart man and a very well-respected. certainly anyone in politics that has gone on television a lot and is commenting sometimes may or may not say
